HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Cross Keys and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Cross Keys property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Cross Keys property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

A local warned us about pests on the street - What should we do?

Buyers in Cross Keys should know that is not a requirement that a seller report on an infestation. When purchasing a house, this matter should be borne in mind. It may not be obvious that a house is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, bed bugs do not live in mattresses, as in commonly thought, but in cracks in the bed frame, or around the room, and will feed on the host

at night. Treatment for pest problems may include destruction of tainted materials. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.

Gas flame

Will the surveyor go into detail on the safety of the gas supply?

A surveyor will locate and visually survey any accessible parts of the system. The survey will include gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) as part of the survey, as well as gas affiliated appliances, for instance chimney linings. The Cross Keys local surveyor won't remove the external fittings and surveyors are not qualified to carry out any tests whatsoever on the serviceability of the system. You should never attempt to fix gas fittings your self as it is potentially hazardous and if there are any worries about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled houses create more problems for owners? Are there any factors that need to be investigated?

Purchasers in Cross Keys should be aware that stone walls can be much weaker than they appear, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.
